I got a set of those, but often use a thin piece of paper instead.
Something I find far more useful is a co-axial indicator
Pay no attention to ra-ra American made blah blah accuracy nonsense. These things are not for accuracy, they are for centering, and as they rotate you move the cross slides to find the spot where there is the least wiggle of the needle. You don't measure with them.
They are useful on a mill and held in a tailstock chuck are useful in a lathe as well.

The virtue is always a cover for the sin. That's the key to understanding the modern left. Whatever they're accusing you of doing, they are doing themselves but more enthusiastically. And that's definitely the story of Justin Trudeau. Tucker Carlson
